Writing prompt #1 – Alphabet Soup

Are you looking for a writing prompt? Or a writing challenge?

One of the staff of Writers’ Digest has issued a writing challenge:

Write a 26 word story where every word begins with a different letter of the alphabet.

That might sound easy – but I tried – and ran out of steam somewhere around the letter Q. It is not as easy as it sounds. Most contributors have followed strict alphabetical order (eg Albert beat Connie doing elegant flips…etc). Last time I checked one contributor had used the letters in a random order. There are no other rules.

Submit your mini-masterpieces here. Entries close in a few days.

If you miss out there, you could always submit them here on my blog through the comments section.

Mmmm – now how can I finish that story?

Albert beat Connie doing elegant flips. Greta hesitated. I just knew….

Never mind – I just cannot seem to go any further – and make sense. The poor old brain is in melt down mode.
